“I have the responsibility of overseeing the medical needs of the children and young people within the school. We employ a school nurse through Thornbury Nursing Services and have done this for the past 2-3 years.
Since taking over the role, I have found that Thornbury Nursing have been very accommodating in supporting the needs of our complex pupils at school. The agency communicates effectively with the school if there are issues around sickness and attendance.
The agency, similarly, negotiates well with us to organise cover for the nurse should the need arise. The quality of the nurses has always been good. I have also found that the staff at the agency have been very helpful with any general queries which arise.”
Assistant Head Teacher
‘’We used Thornbury Nursing for a two-month period. Thornbury offered a very prompt and efficient service and provided us with the seamless nursing cover that we required. The nurse that worked for us was punctual, polite and professional. I was really impressed with how quickly Thornbury were able to manage the paperwork and arrange all that was needed in order for us to have a nurse on site at the college. I would not hesitate to use this agency again.”
‘’Thornbury’s support was crucial in minimising further risks and maintaining good quality care for the patient. Sam* was referred to us after a serious incident in his previous supported accommodation, whereby staff were unable to facilitate appropriate care. We called upon Thornbury Nursing to provide specialist three-to-one RMN support to prevent Sam from being readmitted to hospital. Since his admission, Sam has progressed significantly and this would not have been without the dedicated staff supplied by Thornbury Nursing who followed a bespoke support plan and enabled Sam to access the community once again. Sam has progressed so much so that he is now being discharged from our care. Thank you to Thornbury Nursing for their support.’’

‘’I recently had to stay in hospital after major surgery and was in a lot of pain, feeling lost and down, where I was tended by a Thornbury nurse. Her treatment of me has left me with an absolute definite quest to express my gratitude. She was absolutely the most professional caring person I was lucky enough to be treated by. She cared and looked after me to such a level that she is an absolute credit to your company.”
